Full 2014 WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year voter results.

Quigley was Swish Appeal's unanimous choice for the award as she played a critical role in keeping the Sky going as the team dealt with multiple injury and health-related absences, including an injury to point guard Courtney Vandersloot. Quigley is also a legitimate candidate for the 2014 Most Improved Player award as she had by far the most productive year of her career. In more practical terms, she just had a knack of burning opposing teams that didn't account for her off screens or as a spot up shooter.

"First and foremost, Allie's work ethic is unmatched," said Sky Head Coach and General Manager Pokey Chatman in a Sky release. "So it's nice to see her efforts rewarded. Her ability to play at such a high level, while also transitioning to the point guard position is a testament to her ability and she's a big part of the reason we're in the playoffs."

Quigley and the Sky face the Atlanta Dream in Game 2 of the first round of the WNBA Playoffs with an opportunity to win a playoff series for the first time in team history.
